Lately, I have been losing sound altogether. I don't know what triggers it, if anything. <br> I have SoundSticks and have Xsound as a haxie. <br>Since the Soundsticks are USB, I thought it was something with that, but even the speaker on the G4 doesn't work when I switch to it after a "mute." I do a restart and it is fine for a couple of hours, then silence.<br>I have also disabled Xsounds to see if that is causing it.<br>I know this isn't much to go on, but has anyone else had the issue and if so, what have they done to correct it.<br>Yes I fsck'ed.<br>Any feedback would be great. Thanks.<br><br><br>
fsck ing you dosk has nothing to do with anything!<br><br><br>kill the haxies! they will screw a system over quicker than anything.<br><br>I have soundsticks on a 333 iMac and have never had a problem. running 10.2.5 no haxie crap<br><br>
Is platinum sounds the haxie? if so then the logical thing, since your SOUND is messed up is to just disable that one and see what happens.<br><br>if it is true then email the author and notify them<br><br>
I understand and will disable it. Here at the office, I have no problems at all with my sound since I have the regular speakers with an iSub.<br>Somehow, I thought that because the SoundSticks were USB, that perhaps it was an operating system issue since I had no problems prior to the last upgrade (10.2.5.)<br>Either way, I hear and obey folks with much more expertise than me. <br>Thanks<br><br>
Try plugging headphones, or even a headphone plug alone, into the speaker jack on your Mac. Then take it out after a few seconds. That will often fix a sound problem for some reason.<br><br>Cheers,<br><br>Stan
